On Sunday Popklubb in Newcastle are having a mix swap, so I made this winter mix for them. One lucky visitor will get this 26-track cd with a double cover of grey card and transparencies. You can lift the top sheet here on the back and read which title goes with which band.
As you can't really do that with you screen without damaging it, I've posted the trackslisting below. The plan is also that a few more people will get to hear it as a link to the digital version will be in the next DDOMD mailing list post, and you can of course still sign up here.
I think it's the best mix I've done in a while, listening to it now as I am. I didn't even try to choose songs with winter/xmas in the title and instead just grabbed a bunch tracks I've been playing a lot recently - ending up with lots of chilly post-punk noise and some warming garage fuzz. And let's confess, anything starting with Altered Images and ending with The Fall has got to open one's eyes! Perfect for winter evenings.
